Character Advancement

Dying light represents character growth through giving them skill points to spend. Skill points are used to represent the various skills and knowledge that a character has developed over their life.

There are several ways to earn skill points for you to spend your character, listed below.


For every game that you attend, you are eligible to receive skill points for the character you played. Blanket is awarded to all players provided that the campsite has been cleaned and ready to present to the rangers by checkout time.

This keeps us in good standing with the campsites we use and helps encourage our community approach. Please focus on cleaning and packing up your personal belongings and the area you were using.

All players much assist in cleanup of the campsite in order to be eligible for Blanket.

The amount of skill points your character will receive from Blanket is dependent on the total skill points your character currently has. It is a sliding scale to help keep the game balanced and fun for everyone playing.
